Abstract

A two-dimensional numerical procedure is presented to analyse the transient response of saturated porous elastic soil layer under cyclic loading. The procedure is based on the element-free Galerkin method and incorporated into the periodic conditions (temporal and spatial periodicity). Its shape function is constructed by moving least-square approximants, essential boundary conditions are implemented through Lagrange multipliers and the periodic conditions are implemented through a revised variational formulation. Time domain is discretized through the Crank-Nicolson scheme. Analytical solutions are developed to assess the effectiveness and accuracy of the current procedure in one and two dimensions. For only temporal periodic problems, a one-dimensional transient problem of finite thickness soil layer is analysed for sinusoidal surface loading. For both temporal and spatial periodic problems, a typical two-dimensional wave-induced transient problem with the seabed of finite thickness is analysed. Finally, a moving boundary problem is analysed. It is found that the current procedure is simple, efficient and accurate in predicting the response of soil layer under cyclic loading.
